Death of the Author 2.0


Death of the Author… 2.0

Paolo Cirio’s website has a write-up about an installation from 2010 that deals with misquotations generated by a mock website designed randomly to misquote.   All the quotes used in the installation are memorable ones specifically about plagiarism.

“Culture is a tissue of citations, resulting from thousands of sources of cultural signs. The history of human thinking is a tissue of quotations drawn from the innumerable centres of culture.”



Engraved white marble. 30x19x4cm each (2007). Installation at “Nothing Political”, Komplot – Bruxelles 2010.
